bitch

Have you ever been called a bitch by someone? Someone who was angry? Why do they choose that word? What the hell does it mean anyways? I mean, the real real meaning of bitch? The historic one.
Today I was called a "classless bitch" and a "two faced bitch" by my former boss. Nice huh? He was angry because I replied to an email he sent me where he was explaining why he didn't pay me what he owed me for back pay. I responded and his reply was to call me a "classless bitch" and then again a "two faced bitch". Ouch. Not nice. That was really really not called for.
So- now I sit here stunned and shocked.
Am I a "bitch" because I asked for what I am owed? or am I a bitch because I brought it up to him when he was hoping I would forget about that money.
It's all so confusing... all this name calling business.
Forget the sticks and stones.... names ALWAYS hurt.
What can I do about this?

First I would call who ever is in charge of labor in Mass. He legally owes you. Name calling is just him being a very immature angry selfish man who wants to get away with something. save all emails/proof. Names hurt only if you allow them too. I know, you are the sweetest more generous soul out there, so do not let him hurt you any more. {{{hugs}}}

Attorney General's office (617) 727-3465 Have all your documentation ready.

And which toy store was this so I can NOT go there?

(Also, randomly, does your son know about your blog? Because my son recognized him while I was perusing a few weeks ago and said he'd say something to him - but I asked my son not to because I wasn't sure.)

He's the jerk...you're fine! I don't find your blog so bitchy, so my guess is, you're not either!
Try to have a Merry Christmas!
